Read more about Adam Curry Biography

Adam lived in his hometown until he was eight years old, when he moved to Amstelveen in The Netherlands. He lived there until the late ‘80s and became involved in radio in the early ‘80s. He started at a Dutch pirate radio under the name John Holden, and soon enough made a break with the Dutch weekly pop-music television program entitled “Countdown”. The show also had an English version, which was broadcast through pan-European music channel Music Box. Further on, he joined Veronica, a Dutch broadcast station and worked as a host for several radio and TV shows produced by the station.

In 1987 he returned to the States and got the job of VJ on MTV; he was the host of “Headbangers Ball”, “MTV Top 20 Video Countdown”, and many others. During his stint on “MTV top 20 Video Countdown”, he interviewed several music stars such as Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson. He also worked on radio, hosting the national program HitLine USA, which also added to his net worth.

Back in 1993 he started a website with the domain name, which was disapproved by MTV’s officials and Adam’s superiors, which resulted in a suit by MTV for unauthorized use of their domain name. However, Adam didn’t give up on the idea to put his voice online, and launched OnRamp, a web-portal design and hosting company. Soon enough his company grew in size, and success was unavoidable. He then sold his firm to Think New Ideas Inc. which was partly his firm, and later it was merged with Answerthink; just before the acquisition, it counted more than 7400 employees and had operations in seven countries.

After concluding his business ventures in the USA, Adam moved back to The Netherlands, where he easily found new engagements thanks to the old glory; he was the host of a morning talk/music show on the Radio Veronica, while he also made several appearances on screen, which included being a part of the reality show “Adam’s Family”, with the rest of the cast being his wife and children. In 1999 he started the multimedia company United Resources of Jamby, however, it was unsuccessful, alongside several other ventures.

Nevertheless, in 2004 he made a break with the PodShow, a video sharing site, which he used for launching several podcast shows, including “Daily Source Code”, while also teaming up with other TV and radio personalities to give them a chance to showcase their own programs. This resulted in the highly popular “The Dawn and Drew Show”, hosted by Dawn Miceli and Drew Domkus. His PodShow started in 2005, on Sirius Satellite Radio and lasted until 2007. Adam then started hosting “No Agenda”, with John C. Dvorak, and since then his show has reached extreme popularity, which has increased his net worth to a large degree.

Regarding his personal life, Adam is currently engaged to Tina Snider since 2015. He was previously married twice, firstly to Patricia Paay from 1989 until 2009, with whom he has a daughter. Then in 2012 he married Dutch model and photographer Micky Hoogendijk, but they divorced three years later.
